Senior Frontend Engineer

Location: Bath, UK
£45,000 - £65,000
Monday - Friday full time


MoveGB are on a mission to be the largest active community in the world. Think of what Netflix is doing for the movie industry – we are seeing the same seismic shift in the active leisure sector, with consumers "subscribing to fitness" rather than choosing a single activity provider.

Our marketplace includes thousands of gyms, studios, fitness classes and other activities, giving customers variety and convenience. The aim is to keep our customers active, healthy, and most importantly happy!

Since the COVID-19 social distancing measures were announced, we have introduced live-streaming and on-demand classes to keep our members active and our partners in business!

We're looking for a mid- to senior-level front-end or full-stack engineer to join the team and help us make the product more relevant and more usable to more people. The work will primarily be in react, but there are plenty of opportunities to take on full-stack tasks if you're up for it. 

If you think you're well aligned with our company mission and tech stack, drop us a message describing what you like working on, and we'll take it from there.

Stack outlook:

  • Frontend apps: react, typescript, styled-component, koa
  • Backend services: node, typescript, some legacy perl
  • API: GraphQL
  • Mobile: TWA (android), thin react-native wrapper around a webview (iOS)
  • Infrastructure: AWS, Terraform, Docker, Fargate, RDS (MySQL), some EC2
  • Tooling: git, jenkins, CodeDeploy, slack, bugsnag, graylog, grafana,, amplitude

Most of our customer-facing site & mobile app code has recently been refactored to give us a clean platform to iterate on. Your work will be customer-focused, figuring out how to improve usability, engagement and retention through new features and refined UX.

We're a small team working with a growth mindset, and you'll have the chance to deliver value for customers very quickly. You might be a good fit if you tick one or more of the following:

  • You're a competent mid-level engineer wanting to take on some big projects and demonstrate you're ready for a senior title
  • You have an interest in user behaviour, user economics or data driven development
  • You've been contracting, but want to find a senior perm role before the rumoured IR35 changes kick in
  • You are (or can see yourself as) a MoveGB member or partner, and want to influence our product features and roadmap

Our product/engineering team currently includes five engineers and a product designer. You'll help 100,000s people in the UK get active each day, and 1,000s of fitness instructors find a market for their talent.

No applications from fully remote candidates please, we need to you to be on-site (Bath HQ) a few days a week. However during the COVID-19 epidemic we are encouraging all of our staff to work fully remote. No recruiters please.
